Scout Selection: Back Grealish for another home haul

The Scout 24 Dec 2019

Aston Villa playmaker has 33 points in last four home matches and is in a GW19 line-up captained by Tammy Abraham

A visit from Norwich City looks promising for Jack Grealish's (£6.3m) prospects in Gameweek 19 of Fantasy Premier League.

The playmaker has been a big success in his recent home matches for Aston Villa.

He has scored three goals and supplied two assists in his last four at Villa Park, totalling 33 points.

Norwich, meanwhile, have the joint-worst defence in the league, conceding 37 goals.

Grealish takes his place in a Scout Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) handed the armband and Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) given the vice-captaincy.

Vicente Guaita (CRY) £5.1m

Crystal Palace's No 1 faces West Ham United at Selhurst Park in excellent FPL form. Guaita has claimed 36 points in the last five Gameweeks.

Serge Aurier (TOT) £5.1m

The right-back boasts a major attacking threat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion. Aurier's four assists are second only to the nine of Son Heung-min (£10.0m) for Tottenham Hotspur this term.

John Lundstram (SHU) £5.2m

A visit from Watford gives FPL's top-scoring defender the chance to bring in more returns. Lundstram has averaged 6.7 points per home match for Sheffield United this season.

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.7m

The left-back offers strong all-round potential for Everton's first match under new manager Carlo Ancelotti. Digne entertains Burnley on the back of three assists and three clean sheets at Goodison Park in 2019/20.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.2m

A move up front in Liverpool's last match has lifted the Egyptian's potential. Salah has produced back-to-back double-figure hauls ahead of his showdown with Leicester City.

Dele Alli (TOT) £8.8m

The midfielder has been Spurs' top FPL performer since Jose Mourinho was appointed head coach. Alli has totalled 41 points over the last six Gameweeks, more than any team-mate.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.4m

Manchester City's midfielder is the most-bought player in Gameweek 19, earning 178,000+ new owners for his trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers. De Bruyne has produced 32 points over his previous three away matches.

Jack Grealish (AVL) £6.3m

He is the third most-bought player in the Gameweek, transferred in by more than 140,000 managers.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.1m

The Leicester striker has a strong record against Liverpool at King Power Stadium. Vardy has scored five goals in his last three home meetings with Jurgen Klopp's side.

Tammy Abraham (CHE) £7.9m

His 13 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks are more than any FPL forward. The Chelsea forward hosts a Southampton side who have conceded in each of their last 13 matches.

Teemu Pukki (NOR) £6.6m

Norwich's frontman has stepped up his away form for his visit to Aston Villa. Pukki has two goals, an assist and 22 points in his last three away matches.

What the experts say

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): That team looks excellent for Gameweek 19. Grealish needs to stand up and be counted especially with John McGinn (£5.7m) absent for a period through injury, although I do worry he may end up playing deeper. Salah and Vardy are playing each other although they could both easily score in that game so I'm not surprised to see them both included.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): The inclusion of Salah in here makes me more tempted to transfer him in. Abraham could do well, he needs a goal for his confidence.

Tom (@WGTA_FPL): A strong side we can have no qualms with. Lots of "90-minute men" who should make a positive contribution towards a decent score.

Ash (@FPLHints): Unsure of Pukki featuring in the frontline even if Villa's defence has been vulnerable of late. The rest of the picks seem on point and I can't fault them.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): I like the inclusion of Salah. However, I think it may be one Gameweek too early. I would have included Sterling at the same price point and gone all out Man City. Digne is a great pick and could soon become essential like we thought at the beginning of the season.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I like the Pukki pick but would select Yerry Mina (£5.3m) over Digne if going for an Everton defender. Midfield is the choice one for this week.

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): I know Spurs disappointed against Chelsea but with Son out suspended I like both Alli and Lucas Moura (£7.1m) to step up against Brighton.

Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): Leicester and Liverpool could be a tight game decided by the odd goal. Despite their good form, I'd be tempted to omit Vardy and Salah and go for Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) and Sterling instead, who play Newcastle United and Wolves respectively.
